I just discovered something and therefore need to amend my last post. In that post I talked about what I had to do in order to install an old application. Well--a short while ago, I found out that it does not apply only to old applications. It also applies to some newer ones. I wanted to install MS Office 2007 on my guest machine. I put the CD in the drive and attempted to install it, but it wanted to install it on my host machine. I therefore copied the installation file to a folder on my guest machine and used that file to install. It then installed on my guest machine. I've installed some other applications in the normal way and it worked as it normally would. But on that old app and with MS Office it wouldn't. Has anyone else run into this?
